Does your child need to be motivated to keep reading once the last day of school is here?  Once upon a time the teacher would give the parent a reading list for the child to complete over the summer. The more you read it stimulates your brain and you accumulate more knowledge. Now to motivate kids there are a lot of fun reading programs this summer that offer free ebooks, movies, gift cards, movies etc. Who can resist all these free goodies!!

This great list from Summer Reading Programs for Kids 2015 will give you an overview of what is available for this summer.

This year the Barnes and Noble summer reading program, Imagination’s Destination, gives out a free book to each child in grades 1-6 who reads 8 books over the summer.

Scholastic has a summer reading challenge where kids read and then go online to record the minutes they’ve read this summer.  This runs from May 4- September 4, 2015. They can take weekly challenges to earn rewards.  This program is for elementary and middle school children.

Sylvan’s reading program called Book Adventure encourages children to read books and then take online quizzes over the books to earn points.  They then can turn their points in for prizes.

Chuck E. Cheese has a summer reading program, Chuck E. Cheese Reading Rewards 2015 where kids can earn free 10 Chuck E. Cheese tokens for reading each day for 2 weeks. This program goes all year long.

The Showcase Cinemas summer reading program (formerly National Amusements) gives kids free movie tickets to see a free summer movie each week for each book they read and fill out a book report over.  This year’s program is called Bookworm Wednesdays.
